Early Childhood Education Lab School


With the recent and rapidly evolving developments surrounding the local COVID-19 spread, the District has made the decision to close our Early Childhood Education (ECE) center effective Monday, March 30, until such time that we can reopen and be confident in providing a safe facility for all of those involved.

The Shasta Head Start program is temporarily closing all centers. Normal services will begin on Monday, April 13. Please refer to facebook.com/shastaheadstart​ for additional updates.
